I Wanted to Share COVID-19 Palliatives on My Birthday – Lagos Lawmaker

A lawmaker in Lagos State of Nigeria, Sanai Agunbiade aka SOB, has reacted to the recent COVID-19 supplies inspired invasion of his residence by some of his constituents.

Agunbiade is currently the Majority Leader of Lagos State House of Assembly.

His house in Ikorodu was on Friday was invaded by some irate constituents of his and they made away with some COVID-19 palliatives and supplies which had apparently been in the lawmaker’s custody for months – these COVID-19 were supposed to have been distributed to the people he represents during the lock-down, but three months after lockdown, they have still remained in the lawmaker’s possession.

Agunbiade (Ikorodu Constituency 1), in a statement on Saturday, described the incident as a planned attack.

The legislator said he got intelligence reports of “the plan to exterminate” him but took it as unfounded rumours.

The politician who still appears to see no wrong in hoarding people’s deserved supplies said that he was planning on sharing the palliatives on his upcoming birthday on Sunday.

The Lagos politician claims that he distributed some of the COVID-19 supplies to constituents at the peak of the pandemic more than three times.

“For my birthday on 25th October 2020, I have sent out, through my Media Team, notice of my intention to give support to 50 widows who have already been nominated by different groups in a programme christened Widows Mite for Widows and also distribute to some vulnerable and indigent individuals across the three local councils of my constituency, some palliative materials donated by the state and federal governments, as well as myself.”

Agunbiade claims that it was these same items that were those stolen from his house.

“The barbaric event of Friday is though shocking but like a dolphin which is happy even in the middle of giant waves and horrible storm, I am stable and my faith in the mercy and grace of God is very fat. For certain the looters are not #Endsars protesters because the youth in Ikorodu engaged in very peaceful and well coordinated protest. The perpetrators of the attack on my house are group of assailants on a mission targeted at my life.”

Agunbiade also says that his academic certificates, travelling passports of his family and other valuables were taken as well.

He lamented his wardrobe and that of the wife were ransacked.
